Runner-up on this year’s series of The Voice and friend to Amy Winehouse, Tyler James has just announced his brand new album, A Place I Go. It’s hard not to think about Amy Winehouse when listening to Single Tear by Tyler James.
In a REHAB exclusive Tyler was quoted as saying: “There will be lyrics about Amy on there. But my words tend to be deliberately vague so that people can interpret them how they like.
“Losing her changed my life and she is still such a massive part of me. So it would be too hard to do a specific song about her. I don’t think I could do her justice.”
In recording his new album, Tyler James collaborated with Jamie Woon, Fraser T Smith, Electric and will.i.am.
In another interview, Tyler has also been quoted as saying;
“It’s been one of the most intense experiences of my life,” James said. “It started walking down the street humming some melodies and now here I am 12 weeks later and I’ve got a finished album in my hands, I can’t wait to share it.
“Second chances in this industry are rare. I feel so lucky to even have a chance to release another album, but also getting to work with some of the best writers and producers around and people I’ve wanted to work with for a very long time really makes me a happy boy.
“Writing this album has not only been an incredible experience, it has also been quite therapeutic. These songs are from personal experiences yet at the same time I feel everyone can relate to the lyrics.”
